of more convoys coming from our shipment of arms and nuclear arsenal, from syria to hezbollah. the question will come, what will happen the day after. they are fears in israel that either hezbollah or an agent of al qaeda will try to confiscate the storage of nuclear, chemical arsenal, in the case of these few hours when the regime actually falls. and in that case, israel is considered to have a ground assault into the specific locations of these bunkers. >> to secure the chemical weapons. >> to secure them. and that might i would say that might come in a contradiction with american interests. that would try to form or to support the rebels, without intervening militarily on the ground. and i think that israel wants to be sure that the united states completely approved the israeli point of view that the first priority would be to prevent either hezbollah or al qaeda forces to get hold of the strategic weapons, strategic weapon are the scud missiles and the chemical arsenal. >> from what i'm hearing from american officials, the u.s. might take that action unilaterally on its ow
organization that targets innocent people. on our northern border iran's proxy, hezbollah, continues to stockpile arms and threaten our civilians while they urgently, while they target innocent people across the world. hezbollah is destroying lebanon and supporting the brutal massacre of the syrian people by president assad. fortunately the syrian nuclear capacity was destroyed but unfortunately thousands of chemical weapons remain. we can not allow those weapons to fall in the terrorists hands. itco lead to an epic tragedy. there's an attempt to bring spring to the arab world. it is an arab choice. it is an arab initiative. it may bring peace to the region, freedom to the people, economic progress to arab states. if realized it can lead to a better tomorrow. we pray it will become a reality. the vision between skeptics and those who believe in peace. your voice will encourage belief. you came -- you came to us with the clear message that no one should let skepticism win the day. a vision that says clearly that peace is not only a wish but a possibility. i fully support your call. th
these chemical weapons or transferred these chemical weapons let's say to hezbollah or some other groups, that would presumably result in u.s. military action. i assume that's the threat out there, john. >> well, that is the threat. but then think about what that means. the president has been very clear his national security team has been very clear they don't see any scenarios under which you would put u.s. boots on the ground. would there be some special operations to try to take out additional chemical weapons? certainly the president would say he would want the regime held to justice after the fact. but what do you do in the short term? that is the big question. do you do more to help the opposition or is there a direct u.s. military role? if you take out -- it is very dangerous to take out a chemical weapons site. if you just bomb a chemical weapons site you can disperse the chemicals and do more harm than good. one of the reasons the u.s. has not talked at all about any military options is they range from bad to worse. it would be a tough dilemma for this president if he thought he
, syria is about to collapse in anarchy. you've got hezbollah in lebanon. i think that whole area is moving the other direction. if i were the president of the united states, i believe what he wants to do and ought to do is get out of dodge. >> eleanor. >> i can't remember a time in my lifetime when there was a peaceful status quo in the middle east. it's always been a cauldron. i think the president is right to give a boost to the two- state solution. you're right that he basically is saying that the israelis don't have to stop building settlements in order for the talks to proceed. but his concept is that the pressure will bubble up from these young populations, and that if he can get the peace talks going and he can establish boundaries, that the settlement issue will be solved from that. and i think it is a new approach. he didn't go over there with the peace plan in his pocket, but i think he certainly has revived a sense that peace is possible, which is his word, and he has established, of course, cemented the bond with israel. >> was the u.s. relationship with israel strain
families. that's why every country that values justice should call hezbollah what it truly is, a terrorist organization. because the world cannot tolerate an organization that murders innocent civilians, stockpiles rockets to shoot its cities, and supports the massacre of men, women, and children in syria right now. the fact that hezbollah has allied the assad regime has stockpiles of chemical weapons only heightens the urgency. we will continue to cooperate closely to guard against that danger. i've made it clear to bashar al assad and all who follow his orders, we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists. the world is watching. we will hold you accountable. the syrian people have the right to be freed from the grip of a dictator who would rather kill his own people than relinquish power. assad must go, so that syria's future can begin. because true stability in syria depends upon establishing a government that is responsible to its people. one that protects all communities within its borders, while making peace
for safekeeping. given the fact hezbollah and any number of terrorist organizations are lurking around one corner or the next of any syrian city, who knows what's going on there. there's no guarantee anyone has control over these weapons. the fact of the matter is putting boots on the ground at this point is not going to solve the problem of where these wmd stockpiles go. >> dana, this has an eerie echo of that other despotic leader, saddam hussein, who used chemical weapons against the kurds in 1996. is this the next desperate act of a man who's about to use power? >> well, let's hope not, martin. and particularly on the tenth anniversary of the iraq war, the administration is certainly being very careful not to be responding to what just may be some half-baked reports that my colleagues are picking up that same element of skepticism that this is something real. but obviously as the ambassador was saying, if this is something real, the administration's previous statements have left very little wiggle room and they will have to respond. so certainly the caution upfront is very justified. >> indee
, if hezbollah, the sworn enemy in lebanon get these weapons there will be hell to pay for israel. >> ifill: margaret warner, thank you. >> brown: tomorrow, margaret will report on president obama's trip to the west bank and his meeting with president mahmoud abbas of the palestinian authority. still to come on the "newshour" tonight: after our look at the questions surrounding chemical weapons in syria; the state of play on gun control laws; life and death in the emergency room in newark, new jersey and high speed internet changing what we watch and how we watch it. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: the federal reserve stood by its aggressive plan to stimulate the u.s. economy, keeping short-term interest rates at record lows. and it said there are signs the economy is getting stronger. one of those signs-- unemployment-- fell to a four- year low of 7.7% in february. still, the fed predicted it won't reach 6.5% until 2015. the fed and its chairman, ben bernanke, also had words of caution for congress. >> i do believe that long-term fiscal stabil
. we're very concerned about these chemical weapons being taken or handed over to hezbollah in lebanon. i'll remind you there's roughly 60,000 missiles in lebanon targeted at the north and center of israel. the chemical weapons exist in syria. the missiles exist in lebanon. and when you connect the two, it's a mortal risk for israel and we'll protect ourselves against this sort of action. >> naftali bennett on the security. it's been three months since the shooting at sandy hook elementary school. but to night we just -- this just crossed. it shocked us. a statistic on gun permits. plus the ceo of starbucks comes "outfront." he takes on mayor michael bloomberg and all of washington. why not? >>> and a set of giant rockets discovered in the bottom of the ocean. we're going to show you the pictures and tell you exactly where these came from. from meeting customer needs... to meeting patient needs... ♪ wireless is limitless. [ female announcer ] from finding the best way... ♪ to finding the best catch... ♪ wireless is limitless. i took something for my sinuses, but i still have this
hezbollah so why the u.s. doesn't want to get involved in another war in the middle east, this will be a discussion about where they see the civil war in syria heading. and what the chaos in syria heading and what the chaos could mean for the rest of the region. >> all right, thank you so much for that report live from jerusalem. >>> our coverage of the president's mideast visit does not end here. more live reports from jerusalem later on "america this morning" as well as "good morning america," and you can find additional background on abcnews.com. >>> the pentagon has called a halt to the use of 60 millimeter mortar shells. seven marines killed. several others injured during exercises deep in the nevada desert. investigators trying to figure out white a mortar round fired in the firing tube during the exercise. >>> dramatic new details of the massacre plot averted on the university of central florida campus. police say the gunman had planned to pull the fire alarm and then start shooting as students rushed out of their dorms. that plot was stopped
'd be concerned that chemical weapons could get to their enemies, hezbollah, in lebanon. but beyond that, ashleigh, you asked if this would overtake iran as a concern, and the answer is no. because this trip for the president is largely about israel's security broadly. and the u.s. assuring israelis that the president stands for keeping israel safe, and when it comes to security, there is no bigger concern in israel than iran getting a nuclear weapon or nuclear capability, so that will always be the number one issue on the agenda and syria now will compete for some attention as well. >> well, with a busy agenda, you're going to be following this, the president. we are watching live. this was scheduled to start any moment now, the president, shimon peres, and also our united states president, president obama, scheduled to speak any moment. we'll wring it to you live the moment it does happen. chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, thank you for that. >>> when it comes to difficult and challenging jobs, being the director of a prison is certainly near the top of the list. and you can bet t
consequences and fear of spilling out and hezbollah looms large. >> wish we had more historical depth how we look at this. this is the third arab state to be devastated by a civil war. without pointing fingers of blame, lebanon for 15 years was devastated by civil war. foreign armies, foreign intelligence services. after the u.s. invasion in 2003 iraq went through a different but similar process. >> let's point fingers, please. >> in case of iraq we can point finger at the bush administration, it's very clear. it's not just displacement of millions of people. it's not just people being slaughtered which is happening in syria. it's the deconstruction of stooss of state, the idea of a state of law, all -- >> the worst elements of society. >> exactly. giving free rein to people whose objectives and aims and means are horrific as far as, including most syrians are concerned or most iraqis and lebanese were concerned and stopping this as quickly as possible is something we should be concerned about. as this continues, the radicalization and extremism gets worse. >> the ripple effect, the reason w
's not about shiite and sunni and hezbollah. i think the real urgent issue i think they have to move forward because we are witness to a great tragedy in that part of the world. >> but, alex, it always turns back to the united states. afghanistan, after 9/11. iraq when, you know, a lot of our allies, other than french, the french were saying, got weapons of mass destruction we have to do about it now in syria. do we continue to exist in the middle of an international order where nothing is done unless it's kids from kansas and california and upstate new york and florida that do the fighting? >> yeah. i think this is one of those moments where, i think, you can almost sense the internal conflict in the white house giving the agagenocide. i don't know how the president will commit any troops given the state of affair of our troops when they return home, 600,000 veterans are stale waiting for their claims to send more boys and women, men and women over there. it would not seem to be any actual support for that. at the same time, how do you reconcile that with the blood shed? 70,000 people are d
